Your home air conditioning system is a silent necessity during the summer—which makes it all too easy to take for granted, just like your home electricity or plumbing. By calling BC Express for regular inspection and maintenance visits, you can take a small, preventative step that will have a big impact on your home’s temperature and air quality. Our team offers preventative maintenance plans for all residential cooling systems to help you avoid the cost and hassle of an unexpected breakdown.
An unexpected AC breakdown caused by lack of maintenance is a hot and stuffy inconvenience. Scheduling a regular AC maintenance visit each year is an easy way to stay on top of your home maintenance. Plus, our team can check the quality of the air circulating in your home—you might be surprised by the amount of dust, pet dandruff, mold, and other debris that can escape through the vents! BC Express keeps the preventative maintenance process both simple and affordable with regular, complete system inspections and cleanings. Based on the results of the inspection and the manufacturer’s guidelines for your system, we’ll make ongoing care recommendations and help you plan for a replacement in the future.
Changing your air conditioning filter is a simple preventive maintenance step you can take at home to protect the quality of the air that you and your family breathe. Filters usually need to be replaced every few months, and we recommend replacing them in the spring, as your AC unit collects dust during the winter months while not being used. Different units use different filters, but they’re all designed to be simple and easy for homeowners to safely do alone. Simply open the filter container in the unit and swap the old for the new. Check your owner’s manual or contact our team to get specific details if you’re unsure how to access the filter in your particular AC model.
Once you’ve changed the filter, we recommend doing a quick performance check so you know if you need a professional service visit. Try running your air conditioning system on full blast to blow out any accumulated dust, and then notice if there are any unusually loud noises or odors. Next, pay attention to how long your system takes to begin blowing cold air and how evenly it cools each room. If your system struggles to work effectively and quietly, you need a professional inspection from BC Express.
